The correct posture at the office is fundamental to avoid physical problems.

Every task requests different ergonomics conditions and specific mobility, for that, ergonomic office chairs offer a variety of mechanisms that let adapt the chair to our necessities, and not the other way round.


How should we sit?

To consider a chair ergonomic, it must allow the following regulations:


Seat Height

The armrest should be parallel to the work surface, forming a straight angle with the arm. With both feet firmly on the ground, the knees should form a straight angle.


Synchro Mechanism

The angle formed by the backrest and the seat of the chair can be regulated according to the use and the user.


Adjustable Armrest

Place your arms to the lowest position to facilitate the mobility. In static works adjust the height and distance until the armrest supports perfectly.


Lumbar Adjustment (although this regulation is less common for its high cost, it is important for chairs that are used during all the working day)

Adjust the height of the lumbar support to get the total support of the back and a good distribution of weight.

What is the static work?

Analysis and drafting of documents, intensive computer work… Block the synchro mechanism and use the armrest positioning them in the necessary position.
